“You do not attract what you want; you attract what you are.”
Our desires are what motivate us to move in our lives. We are constantly giving birth to new desires…as one desire is fulfilled; another one almost immediately takes it place. As humans, we need something to look forward to in life. We do not do very well with the same ole, same ole day in and day out.
The Universe works on laws. The law of gravity keeps our feet planted on the ground and the law of attraction draws things that are alike together.
As humans, we are energy beings. We are made of cells, which on many levels, vibrate. Our feelings even carry a certain vibration – anger being very low on the scale of vibration and joy being very high. The thoughts we choose to focus upon dictate our feelings, therefore dictate our vibration level. Our vibration level is felt by others – which is why you can walk into a room and go “Whoa! What is going on in here?” But, our vibration is also felt by Universe and is the main vehicle through which we communicate with it.
The Universe picks up our “signal” and because it only follows laws, kicks in the law of attraction. You feel lonely, so it delivers to you in the form of experiences, opportunities to be lonely. It notices where you are putting your attention (your thoughts and feelings) and takes that as communication that “this is what you want.”
Just as we sometimes have to work on our communication skills in life, we must also pay attention to how we are communicating to the Universe. If you want to manifest certain things into your life, you have to feel and think as if those things are already here. In other words, you have to BELIEVE that your wish has already come true! (I am a millionaire…I am just waiting for the money to arrive in my bank account!) . Practice paying attention to your thoughts and feelings this weekend. Where are you putting your attention? Who are you being? Are you being someone who complains and worries or are you being someone who practices joyfulness and hope? Everything that happens to us in our lives happens for a reason…no matter how you choose to interpret it. The Universe is kind and only creates situations in which we will be best taken care of. Trust it and trust yourself that you have the strength, power and control to dictate your life to go where you want it to go. That is why we were given free will…USE IT!!
“Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.”
